The World According to Jones

The NZPIF Conference 2008

Sir Robert Jones to speak at the NZPIF Conference 2008

The World According to Jones

The New Zealand Property Investors Federation is delighted to announce Sir Bob Jones has been confirmed as a keynote speaker at the 2008 National Conference which will be held at Rotorua’s Energy Event Centre from the 25-26th of October (Labour weekend).

Sir Bob Jones will be discussing his experiences in Property investment. As one of our best known property investors, many New Zealanders have followed his advice on their path to wealth creation.

NZPIF President, Martin Evans says “Bob Jones is a New Zealand Icon, he comes from the old school and property has worked for him. He’s controversial, he’s got plenty to say and he’s not afraid to say what he thinks. I’ve no doubt conference attendees will pick up plenty of tips”.

Mr Evans believes learning from the success stories of others is one of the most valuable things investors get from being a member of an association.

“Hearing success stories like Sir Robert Jones and using them in their own investment process, is what it’s all about. The annual Federation conference provides an opportunity for investors to pick up tips, not only from the speakers, but by networking with other investors” says Evans.

Networking is definitely a one of the fundamentals that Sir Bob Jones advocates. He says, "Imagination and wide knowledge of human affairs aside, the other essential requirement to succeed in commercial property investment is networking. It is a most useful tool in one's kit."
